I commented on a post made by a young boy named Miracle. He talks about his favorite rugby player, Rokocoko. It seems rugby is as important in New Zealand as football is in America. This particular class is made up of 5 and 6 year students and their ethnicities include Maori, Samoan, Tongan, European, Cook Island, and Nieuan. These 9 and 10 year olds are very creative and have taught me about rugby, something I had no idea about before reading their blog. They have also created beautiful videos explaining the discoveries of New Zealand and America. They are an interesting, intelligent group of students attending Pt. England School in Auckland, New Zealand.
I commented on Bennett's blog, a 6th grader attending Waukee Middle School in Waukee, Iowa. I read a descriptive story by Bennett. He talked about a pet cheeseburger he had that got sick after a week. After giving the cheeseburger a pill as an attempt to make him feel better was to no avail, Bennett ate the cheeseburger to get it out of its misery. This was a really creative piece that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.
I commented on Alba Shunkshark's blog. He took a picture of the U.S.S. Alabama battleship and wanted suggestions as to what he should name it. I suggested "Shapes" because the angles of the lines surrounding the circles cause me to think geometrically.
